Reclaim the Power - Didcot and beyond!

Reclaim the Power marquee

Five days to go - here we come Didcot!

Programme's up and packed full of treats. 

In less than a week's time Didcot Mass Action Camp 2015 will be in full swing and we're counting down the days and raring up for a wicked weekend.  

Set-up and start: Friday 29th May
Finish: Tuesday 2nd June 2015
Facebook event here

We've got a packed schedule this year including the 'Ministry of Dissent' - a one-stop shop for skilling up and taking action with trainers on board all day.  There'll be the good people of Barton Moss speaking about how to set up an energy co-op and activist friends from Rojava will be talking about how to set up an entire autonomous region!

A range of trainings are scheduled from organisations working on the frontline of social change in the UK right now, including London Black Revs and UK Uncut, with Fuel Poverty Action taking on the 'Big 6'  and community mobilising with DPAC (Disabled People Against Cuts), and we'll hear news about what's coming up with the Paris climate talks in December, and from friends in the Rhineland about holding off Big Coal there in August. Closer to home, we'll also be hearing from Frack Free Lancashire about the imminent decision in June, and how we can come together to say no to fracking - not now, not ever. 

There's also a comedy double bill and music in the evening and time for us to dance and play, and get energised and ready for our big day of action on Monday. 

Check out the full programme here.

The site will be announced on Friday the 29th - keep your eyes on our website Facebook and Twitter
